Hornblower – Electricity

16th August 2012 – I forgot to put my plastic pipes for the electricity. I always use plastic draining pipes to put through my cables. It took me some time to get them between the hull and the insulation. I drilled the holes for the sockets in the living room and started to put the cables.

Hornblower – Bedroom

15th August 2012 – We mainly continued working in the bedroom. All the walls are finished and we have just started the ceiling. I’m not sure whether it will hold or not. We have to bend the wood a little to much for the curve of the ceiling….


Hornblower – T&G

7th August 2012 – The finish for the Hornblower will be similar to the one of the Watergeus. T&G wood will be used. A few months ago I did the living room, now I’m starting with the bedroom.

Hornblower – Sleeping room

31st July 2012 – I just can’t get the sleeping room finished. It seems like an endless job. All those little corners and shapes that need wood. I spent some time calling for prices for windows. I want to replace the wheelhouse windows as quick as possible so I can finish the kitchen as well.

Busy day!

31st July 2012 – For the first time in two weeks I had some time to work on the Hornblower. In the afternoon they came to check for a water supply from land. Then I had to drive to Ghent to arrange shipyard visit. When I got back, I continued working on the sleeping room.

Kolenkaai Feesten

27th, 28th an 29th July 2012 – I’ve been working a lot and I’m feeling tired! Working on boats is my hobby and soon my profession as well. Nevertheless I wanted to have relaxed weekend. On Friday I went to a Folk festival, the Saturday and Sunday I spent with my neighbours on the street event Kolenkaai Feesten!
